"This fiction focuses on the most important human relations, the ones central to our conceptions of who we are and what life is about. Ebenbach does this all while playing to his strength: using the small, the ordinary, the everyday to give little glimmering glimpses of the enormous, the extraordinary, and the startlingly true."
"The souls of Judith's story and each of Ebenbach's stories about the wilderness of parenthood shine brightly in this lush, honest and beautifully written collection."
"Ebenbach's range is as varied and nuanced as the parental experience....Ebenbach's empathy, of showing the complexity of his characters no matter how dark...give it an authenticity that transcend gender or parental roles into what is at heart what it means to be human. It's as if the stories have always existed and we're hearing about it now; they weren't created by some guy, they happened to someone."
-Robert Duffer, Good Men Project
"The arrival of a child throws the various characters in Into the Wilderness into confusion. With delicacy and generosity, David Ebenbach follows as they try to find their uncertain ways, discovering that, whatever their ages, some reach parenthood before they're ready to tackle adulthood."
-Jesse Lee Kercheval

The longest story is written in four parts about a lady named Judith and her daughter. She finds herself pregnant without knowing who the father is. Her parents come and help her during the pregnancy and after the delivery trying desperately to know the name of the newborn baby. They are Jewish and Judith wants to have an official Jewish ceremony where there is an official giving of the baby's name. She goes a full month before this service without knowing what name she will come up with and while in the middle of the ceremony she is enlighten with the name and shares that with the congregation at one time. This is a very heartwarming story filled with questions, frustration, joy and destiny.
I enjoyed some stories more than others of course, and everyone will have their favorite. I would encourage you to take it out on a test run and see how you like the stories.
